Two New York Knicks, Carmelo Anthony (gold) and Willy Hernangomez (bronze) walked away Sunday with Olympic medals. How did their teammates back home respond?
Kristaps Porzingis paid tribute to both his NBA mentor and his good buddy from his Sevilla days:
New Knick Brandon Jennings made sure to pay homage to Melo:
Let nobody tell you that non-guaranteed training camp invitee Ron Baker isn’t a cagey competitor; he’s already sucking up to dad!
No congratulatory tweet as of yet from fellow non-guaranteed rookie Chasson Randle. You’re falling behind, bruh. Even Marshall Plumlee, he of the guaranteed contract, still managed to retweet this:
Putting that Duke degree to use, I see.
As for Willy, he seems pretty happy, as he should. He did his country proud:
And Melo ... he’s coming home, y’all.
